I was changing out my compressor, condenser, and expansion valve to get my ac running nice and smooth again but the expansion valve bottom screw doesn’t grab anymore in the firewall, the threads were pulled out and looked like a spring leftover on the screw. Picture attached, does anyone have a fix for this?

As you can see the bottom screw hole is just smooth.

Thanks in advance,

Do a heli-coil or replace the assembly, I think I still have mine laying around actually.

You could do oit the bdso way and run in a slightly bigger bolt. Helicoil may work but hard to access. Might have to bite the bullet and replace evaporator.
